Goda Žukauskaitė (LT/NL) is a contemporary dancer, performer and maker based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She graduated from Amsterdam University of the Arts, in the Modern Theatre Dance department (2018). As a dancer/performer, she is currently involved with a few companies: “Kalpanarts” (NL), “Schweigman&” (NL) and working with various independent artists and organisations around The Netherlands and Lithuania.
 

Goda is creating her own work under the research called Performative Reality. Mostly she is focused on durational, endurance and site-specific performances. Goda has done performances that vary in length from 4, 9, 12, 15, 36 up to even 78 hours. Her work has been presented all around the world: Lithuania, the Netherlands, Italy, India and more.
 

Currently, she is developing a creative platform led by nature, called Vagebond, where various interdisciplinary performances and research processes are taking place on a board of the house-boat.
 

Together with a group of artists, Goda is building a performance art house Platform Nexus located in the community of Het Domijn, in Weesp (NL).
 

Since 2021, Goda is also a founder and member of the collective Anna&Goda. It is a Brussels/Amsterdam based dance-performance and visual art duo collective that aims to bridge their contemporary dance and theatre backgrounds to a more multidisciplinary approach of performances and live installations.
 

Goda is also leading various movement and performance based workshops in the Netherlands and Lithuania, for both professionals and non professionals. She is currently developing her own Live Movement Practice method and giving workshops based on her Performative Reality research.
 

In 2021 Goda was nominated in a Dance Category of the Piket Kunstprijzen (NL) as one of the 3 the most promising dancers.
